Information

Family Associate

Lorenz Ansaldo is an associate for the Family. He's a troubleshooter for their problems, outsourcing to freelance villains when necessary.

Some say Lorenz got where he did by taking care of certain unsavory tasks for the Family. Others say he'd be much more highly placed if it wasn't for his mouth getting him into trouble all the time. In any case, he gets the job with an easy smile, a nudge and a wink.

Bust up the dockworker's strike

Briefing

Alright, the Family has got some problems down at the docks. It seems those Scrapyarders have been riling up the dockworkers, causing all kinds of grief for the Family there.

Don't leave any permanent marks. Capische?

Sharkhead's docks

You hear the angry shouts of the dockworkers as soon as you set foot on the docks.

Souvenir: Broken Seashell


This is a broken seashell taken from the costume of the hero known as the Sea Witch. You took it as a souvenir of a tale you like to call:

Carpe Diem

It all started when Lorenz Ansaldo asked you to solve a problem for the Family. A hero known as the Sea Witch was attacking various Family-owned cargo ships, the latest being the Carpe Diem. They've been having trouble tracking her down, so they decided to hire a freelance villain to help them. The only clue the Family had was that she had worked with a group known as the Legacy Chain in the past. Invading a Legacy Chain base, you interrogated their leader, Arcanist Stigand. He revealed the Sea Witch had a relationship with a Scrapyarder leader known as Iron Billy.

Rumor had it that Iron Billy was hanging out somewhere in The Crush on Sharkhead Isle. Interrogating a bunch of Scrapyarders yielded you Iron Billy's hideout. Fighting through mobs of his Scrapyarder allies, you managed to kidnap Iron Billy.

The Sea Witch agreed to a final confrontation on the Carpe Diem, the ship she earlier put out of commission months back. Fighting through her Legacy Chain and Scrapyarder allies, you finally took out this enemy of the Family.


Interrogate Legacy Chain leader

Briefing

Ay yo, we got a problem, Character. You ever hear of this dame known as the Sea Witch? She's some kinda hero who patrols the waters of the Rogue Islands, lookin' to cause problems for us honest businessmen. She's been attackin' a few Family smuggling... er... shipping vessels including the Carpe Diem, and the Family wants to put her down for the count.

Trouble is, she's pretty hard to find. We been lookin' for her awhile, and the only thing we found is she sometimes works wit' a group called the Legacy Chain. You heard of 'em? They're these mystic nutcases who are out to bring order to chaos or some such. Whatever! We found where a bunch of these Legacy Chain goombas are hiding out and we need a heavy to go in and interrogate their leader. With the proper, ahem, persuasion you should be able to find out more on this Sea Witch.

Mission Acceptance

Those Legacy Chain fellas got a lot of magic mumbo-jumbo backin' them up.

Mission Objective(s)

You notice some strange symbols chalked onto the floor of the warehouse.

  • Interrogate Legacy Chain leader
    • Defeat leader and minions

You interrogate the Legacy Chain leader about the Sea Witch. Arcanist Stigand reveals that the Sea Witch has a personal relationship with one of the leaders of the Scrapyarders named Iron Billy.

Nice work on interrogating that Legacy Chain leader, Character! So the Sea Witch is all lovey-dovey with a Scrapyarder leader named Iron Billy, eh? I think it's time to bring things to a head. Rumor has it that Iron Billy was last seen in The Crush. Find and kidnap Iron Billy!

Nice work, Character! I'll put the word out on the street that we got Iron Billy. Then we just wait until the Sea Witch comes runnin'! Capische?

Take Down Sea Witch

Briefing

Our plan for taking down the Sea Witch is going well. When you interrogated the Sea Witch's Legacy Chain allies you found out she had a sweetie among the Scrapyarders, a guy called Iron Billy. You managed to track down and kidnap him from his hideout in the Crush. Sure enough, the Sea Witch has come callin' and wants a final confrontation at the Carpe Diem, the wrecked ship off the Port Recluse docks.

It's time to finish this, Character. Go to the Carpe Diem and take down the Sea Witch.

You might want to take some friends, Character. She's a pretty tough broad and I hear she's REAL angry about you kidnappin' Iron Billy!

Mission Acceptance

We want some of our boys to soften 'em up for ya.

This dame has been a thorn in the Family's side for too long. End this.

Mission Objective(s)

The Carpe Diem sits idly after being damaged by the Sea Witch. Now the Sea Witch waits for a final confrontation with you!

Talk to Siren's Call Warzone Liaison

Briefing

You've heard of Siren's Call, haven't you? Frankly, it's a war zone right now. Lord Recluse is looking to push into Paragon City from there, and Paragon City is trying to push right back. It wouldn't do any harm to your reputation if you were to head over there and throw down for Arachnos. Why don't you go talk to the Warzone Liaison in Sharkhead Isle? I'm sure he could use your help.

Siren's Call is a PvP zone, where you may be killed by other players.

The liaison can help you find the right contacts in Siren's Call.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Talk to Warzone Liaison

Debriefing

If you know anything about Siren's Call, you know that it's a bloodbath in there. Don't go in if you can't handle that. If you're tough enough, though, you can talk to Operative Massey. He's got the skinny on all sorts of missions that will help swing the battle in Arachnos' favor. Or you can talk to the Arbiter at the Arachnos base; he can tell you all about bounties.

Siren's Call is a PVP zone. If you enter, you may be killed by other players. Do not enter if you are not willing to risk this.


Debriefing

The takeover of Siren's Call is one of the crucial elements of Lord Recluse's plan. If you can make your name there, it'll make a big difference to your reputation with Arachnos.

Take out Freakshow doctor

Briefing

Ay yo, we got some problems at the docks. We got some Freakshow jackin' supply crates from the docks. Normally, this wouldn't be a problem the Family couldn't handle themselves, but there's somethin' different about these Freakshow. When we tried trailing them, they seemed to just disappear! That's right, we're dealin' with invisible Freakshow!

Now you know why we're lookin' for professional assistance. Track down and take out whoever is responsible for making these sneaky freaks!

Nothin' worse than a Freakshow appearin' outta nowhere.
